    Hello all,

    Recently while I have been using my Mac I have noticed a strange issue. It is regarding the 'q' key. The key doesn't work when I try to use it in Safari, it works perfectly fine in Firefox (using it now to type this), and any other programs. When in Safari the Q key works in the search bar at the top, and in the little google search bar to the top right. However, it does not work in the main window of safari. For example, if I go to Google, I am unable to use the Q key when typing in a search. The Q key does work when I hold 'shift' to produce a uppercase Q.

    Any help with this issue would be greatly appreciated.
